Caught my first bass

Post by meandermeadows » Sun Jun 19, 2016 8:21 am

Just wanted to send a big shout out to the Quadfather for reaching out to me and helping me along on my quest for bass. Yesterday he introduced me to Bitter lake, where I landed a few little rock bass and one largemouth. Not a trophy by any means, but it sure was fun to catch, and I definitely have the bug! Also learned how to navigate my new float tube, and just had a great time all around :)

There are bass in Ballinger? I didn't know that. Largemouth or small?

Nice! Congrats on your first bass and welcome to the family.
They will only get bigger the more you learn and spend time on the water.

Right on Chris! Way to get him hooked.
